With pub roast dinners in Britain generally costing between £10 and £20 – one pub appears to be bucking the trend after claims it sells the ‘cheapest Sunday lunch in England’.

Next week (28 April) customers at the Church Inn, in Lowton, Warrington, can feast on a Sunday roast with all the trimmings for less than the price of a packet of pork scratchings.

The popular Cheshire pub is offering its punters a rather generous roast dinner portion that includes roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, carrots, green beans and gravy – all for just £1.

Headed by licensees – father and son Peter and Ryan Travis – the duo said they came up with the scheme to ensure their customers can experience a “delicious Sunday roast” for an affordable quid.

“It is great to be able to give something back to this wonderful community that have been so welcoming to us and give people a really good reason to come and visit,” said Ryan.

“We’re hopeful that if our first £1 Sunday lunch is successful, this may become a regular occurrence at the Church Inn.”

The beloved watering hole follows the trend set by a pub in Margate that became the first to offer roast dinners for £1​ to its punters.

“We’re delighted it has been popular so far and customers can get a £1 lunch as long as they have spent £3 at the bar,” concluded Ryan.

Paul Murphy, business development manager at Admiral Taverns, which owns the Church Inn, told of his support for the £1 roast dinner strategy.  

“This is a fantastic initiative from Ryan and Peter, who are providing some excellent offers for the locals,” exclaimed Murphy.

“Their enthusiasm and motivation are already reflected in the pub and I’m thrilled the lunch has had such a positive uptake.”

Customers can feast on the Sunday roast from 28 April, and 100 seats have already been booked for the first serving.
